New Fab Expansion at Sony Device Technology (Thailand) Co., Ltd.

Atsugi, Japan — Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation today announced that, starting in February 2024, it has begun the operations with several production lines at the new fab built on the premises of Sony Device Technology (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (“SDT”), a production center responsible for assembly processes of semiconductors. The opening ceremony was held today, officiated by top executives from Sony Semiconductor Solutions Group led by Terushi Shimizu, President and CEO of Sony Semiconductor Solutions and Yoshihiro Yamaguchi, President of Sony Semiconductor Manufacturing, SDT Managing Director Takeshi Matsuda. It was witnessed by guests including Japan’s Ambassador to Thailand, Mr. Masato Otaka, Mr. Wirat Tatsaringkansakul, BOI Deputy Secretary General and other VIPs. 

SDT serves as a production center for the assembly of the main product line within Sony’s Imaging & Sensing Solutions business. The new fab, dubbed “Building 4,” will be utilized for the assembly of image sensors for automotive applications and display devices as well as the mass production of laser diodes for data center application.

Going forward, SDT plans to expand production facilities at Building 4 in line with market trends, while also planning to create approximately 2,000 new jobs with this new operation, thereby contributing to local employment and expanding the semiconductor industry in Thailand.

In addition, SDT has been operating its facilities on 100% renewable energy since fiscal year 2021. In the clean room of Building 4, the air conditioning system controls cleanliness, temperature and humidity by focusing on areas of need, and recycling technology for waste heat and hot water has also been adopted. Furthermore, SDT plans to cover the roof area of Building 4 with solar panels, with operations scheduled by the end of 2024 (calendar year). By accelerating the initiatives to reduce energy consumption and adoption of renewable energy, SDT will continue to run on 100% renewable energy even after Building 4 goes into full operation.

“With the completion of Building 4, we are very pleased to be able to deliver to more customers, a product line-up whose market is expected to expand over the medium to long term,” said Takeshi Matsuda, Managing Director of Sony Device Technology (Thailand) Co., Ltd. “As an overseas manufacturing site of Sony Semiconductor Solutions Group, SDT will contribute to the sustainable evolution of Sony’s business as well as society.”
